RAF Falcons make Combat Stress their chosen charity for the season

Latest Stories

We are delighted to announce that the RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team has made Combat Stress one of their chosen charities for the new season.

The RAF Falcons, formed in 1961, is the only centrally funded, professional, military parachute display team in the UK and one of the premier display teams in the world. Based at RAF Brize Norton, Oxfordshire, they display at venues all over Britain and Europe throughout the year. They have performed many times for the Royal Family and heads of state, set records and introduced many exciting innovations into formation skydiving.

Traditionally, the RAF Falcons support the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund and the Royal Air Forces Association, and pick additional charities to raise donations for each season. This year we have been chosen alongside Cardiomyopathy UK, who were chosen in recognition of team member Sgt Sean McCabe.

All proceeds from the 2024 season will be split equally between the charities.

Flight Lieutenant Jennifer Littler, Officer Commanding of the RAF Falcons, said: “It is an absolute honour to support Combat Stress this year, the treatment and support they provide to both serving military personnel and veterans is incredible.

“We look forward to raising awareness of their work and acknowledging the importance of good mental health.”

Robert Marsh, Director of Fundraising at Combat Stress, said: “We are extremely grateful to the RAF Falcons for choosing to support us this season by raising vital awareness and funds and driving conversations around military mental health.

“We are looking forward to watching them in action and hope their efforts will encourage struggling current or former service personnel to reach out for help, as well as inspire the public to donate to us to ensure that our specialist mental health support remains available for everyone who needs it now and in the future.”
